    They are out of stock until September so you have plenty of
    time to investigate......

    Thats pretty much the only 4 stroke kit (Grubee ) that mounts in frame thats
    worth having
    There is another one with the same Chinese engine but a different gearbox (J L Hoot ) that is available now and is cheaper but I wouldn't want it.

    There are 35 cc 4 stroke friction kits as a rack mount for about $400
    Most other rack mounts will be more money

    The 4-stroke kit you linked to uses a centrifugal clutch so all you do is pedal a few revolutions and then away you go with the throttle.

    I haven't bought anything from them, but, this vendor appears to make friction drive kits (less the engine) for a pretty reasonable price. The kit is similar to Staton's. The total price should be about $400 for a Honda engine from smallenginewarehouse & the drive kit.

    If you can get the real Honda engine- it's worth it. I bought that exact engine from Small Engine Warehouse- no complaints....in fact, the exact opposite- accolades a'plenty.
